Easy Gifting Idea: Candles with the Scent of Holidays & Home!

With just a few weeks left until Christmas, you may be feeling stumped about what to get a few people on your list. Maybe they have everything they need. Perhaps they insist that "you don't need to get anything".  Whatever the reason, you can't very well come to the holiday dinner empty handed, so what do you do?

The AirWick "Enchanted Holiday" collection is a new line of candles at Walmart that are as beautiful to look at as they are pleasant to smell.  They look like $15 candles you'd get at a bath and body or designer home store, but they carry a much lower price tag.  And they happen to be just that gift that you can purchase a few of before the holiday and avoid any awkward situations by not having the right gift on hand.

Just what can you use these for?

  • Hostess gifts for holiday parties
  • Gifts for your mail carrier, teachers, babysitter, daycare provider, hair or nail professional, etc.
  • White elephant gifts
  • Any other gift exchange where you don't know the person well but want to give them a high-quality present
How much will you pay for these glass candles with elegant silver lids? Just $4.98 each. Yes, you can get 3 or 4 candles for the price of a "boutique" candle of similar quality!

The three scents we tried included Mrs. Claus Apple Pie, Evergreen Adventures, and Frosted Vanilla & Cupcake Delight. Other varieties also include Gingerbread Playhouse and Waiting By the Fireside. All are designed to invoke those familiar holiday experiences though scent.

(Looking for candles that will be appropriate even after the holiday? Check out the new line of Good to Be Home candles, found exclusively at Walmart!)

Who will you give candles to this year?
